Chris Christie short-arms the family

Politics has been compared to chess, poker, boxing, and“show business for ugly people.” But politics is so filled with artifice and contrivance that it can justly be compared to only one sport – professional wrestling. There is a classic scenario in pro wrestling: A promoter pairs a fan favorite up with a wrestler with a shady past. Over time, the hero is convinced to put his suspicions aside … [Read more...]

Did Rob Portman flip-flop on gay “marriage” for campaign cash?

Ohio Senator Rob Portman states that his flip-flop on gay “marriage” was inspired by his homosexual son – a stance that has won him few plaudits from the LGBT Lobby – but it is possible he had baser motives: he may have wanted to raise cold, hard cash.

Why Romney Lost

With the tortured analyses, memoranda, and bluster about why Mitt Romney failed to win the presidency this Tuesday, it may be easier to analyze the reasons he did not lose the election. Mitt Romney did not lose the election on Tuesday because he’s a bad man, an incapable campaigner, or too “severely conservative” on abortion or immigration (or virtually anything else).

Golfing While the Constitution Burns
